Campaign Description

2020 has been a year. Almost overnight, our community has been asked to adapt to a new set of social norms. How we gather has fundamentally changed. For most, this has meant significant changes to our day-to-day lives. Many couples planning their wedding likely didn't expect their big day to change so drastically - or to plan the "backup of their dreams". Many event and wedding professionals have seen their busy 2020 season essentially vanish before their eyes. This is not only disappointing from a creative standpoint, but has many financial implications too. Vendors are looking for ways to work and create an income for themselves for the remainder of the season. That's where we come in! We've thought it through - what would the perfect elopement in YYC look like? To us, that means a skyline view of the mountains & the Tower. It means golden hour on a rooftop, at a heritage building in historic Downtown Calgary. It means bubbles, bites and an intimate memory with your closest ones. A modern elopement, with enough bells and whistles to be a placeholder until the couples next celebration or the perfect way to say I DO. We want to welcome couples with open arms to the 2020 Luv Club - celebrating their love, the best way we know how, no matter the circumstances.

2020 - LOVE CONQUERS ALL

Dani Anderson Creative was born out of maternity leave. With a passion for the events industry, but also balancing a firstborn, I wanted to create a business for myself that longterm could be sustainable for my family but also provide flexibility. Many mothers in our events industry have taken this path - we want to stay relevant and stay busy, but want time to watch our families grow. I know I’m not alone when I say that I thought 2020 was going to be “My Year”. I was prepared to return to work in the wedding industry full time, creatively inspired after a year 'away'.  I was missing my clients, my industry friends - and so excited for all of the beautiful weddings to come. When information starting unfolding about COVID-19 at the beginning of March, my stomach started to sink. I started to realized that this summer would look NOTHING like I had expected. Many of my loved ones and clients started cancelling, postponing… I could see my colleagues begin to plan for a season without an income. It was overwhelming. 

So, I started brainstorming. What could I do? Where could we do it? I had to wait and see what the government would allow and what felt reasonable and safe to do. Now we know - our special number is fifteen or less - the perfect elopement size. I’m so proud and humbled to present this package with an amazing team of vendors to help couples celebrate their love during this snapshot of history. 

2020 LUVCLUB is a YYC Elopement Experience. It’s not business as usual - it’s better. It’s an acknowledgement that #loveisnotcancelled. It’s a middle finger to waiting forever, and ever, and ever (which is how wedding planning can feel sometimes, especially during a pandemic). It’s having your cake, and eating it too. 

I am so passionate about reviving the events industry this year. I believe that couples will make a decision to commemorate their love if it is affordable and accesible. I believe that vendors and artists deserve to be paid this summer, instead of waiting and hoping until the 2021 season. I believe that we have so much talent growing in this city, that I am not willing to wait until 2021 to see it bloom. I want to bring positivity and creativity to those who need it. Most importantly, I am determined to adapt and help others adapt to our new reality. 2020 is the year and love conquers all.

FAQs

Where is the funding going?

The funding is primarily going to paying our current vendors their appropriate, full fees and adding additional vendors to our roster to make our packages even more amazing and well-rounded.

Can any couple book the 2020 LUV CLUB? Do we have to be affected by COVID-19?

Currently we are accepting all bookings! Many couples who were planning to get married in 2021 have now seen their favourite vendors, venues and dates been booked by 2020 couples having to replan. There is so much trickle down effect from COVID-19 that we want any couples who feel compelled to celebrate their love this summer to have that opportunity!

I'm a vendor - can my couples join the 2020 LUV CLUB?

ABSOLUTELY! We are so open to vendors not involved in our current packages to join our project. Subject to availability, we are happy to bring on your couples in our space and offer them as much of our package as they need. If you're a photographer, a wedding planner, an officiant, a florist, or anything in between - we would love to connect with you!
